Welcome to the home page
for section ES33 of MATH-1150 (College Algebra)
at Southeast Community College
in the Fall term of 2012.
I am Toby Bartels, the instructor.
Here are some useful links for the administration of the course:
If you miss a homework assignment, then you can find it here.
Eventually some solutions to graded homework will show up here too.
Although only homework and the final exam contribute directly to your grade,
attendance is also important.
The official textbook for the course
is the 9th Edition of Algebra & Trigonometry
published by Prentice-Hall (Pearson).
You should be able to get this at the bookstore,
and the homework problems will come from it.
I also have some notes for lectures, hand-outs, and so forth.
If you missed class, then you might be able to find a substitute here.
But there is no guarantee that everything will show up!
